Many individuals believe that the finest thing to do when they arrive home after shopping is to wash their dishes. It appears to be the best way to get rid of bacteria and dirt from your food, but experts caution that it may cause more harm than good. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are several products that consumers believe they should clean after purchase at the store before preparing them, however this is not necessary.
Here are a few meals that should never be washed:
Never, ever wash eggs.
Washing eggs, according to the WHO, may aid in the transfer of bacteria such as salmonella from the exterior to the inside section of the egg. The American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) backs this viewpoint, claiming that when an egg is washed, the natural barriers on the shell can be disrupted, allowing bacteria to enter the egg's interior. If you like your eggs fried runny, the bacteria will not be eliminated by the heat.
Raw chicken, turkey, or store meat should not be washed.
Most people will feel compelled to rinse their groceries after purchasing them at the grocery. However, the World Health Organization advises against it since washing raw turkey, beef, or chicken can infect your kitchen counters. When this happens, the bacteria might spread to other foods, such as raw fruits or salads.
According to the WHO, current supermarket trends require stores to fully wash these items while processing, and you do not need to wash them again. However, you should make sure that they are adequately cooked to remove any bacteria or germs that may have gotten onto them during packaging.
